2019 USS WASP ASSOCIATION REUNION in BUFFALO, NY

AUGUST 12 to AUGUST 18,  2019


At our New Orleans reunion last year we voted on a proposal to link up with the SQUADRONS AND SHIPMATES Association for joint reunions. The motivation behind this was to address the diminishing membership of our organization. The Squadrons and Shipmates Association is open to all members of the armed forces who ever served on a United Sates Aircraft Carrier.
